Prep:

15 Min

Cook:

1 Hr

Ingredients

2 pkg
3 oz raspberry jello
1 pkg
unflavored gelatin (for extra firmness)
3/4 c
whipping cream
3 c
boiling water
15
drops green food coloring
100
flexible straws (or enough to fill your container)
1
tall container (1 quart or 1 liter carton of milk)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine gelatin in bowl and add boiling water.
2
Let it cool to lukewarm and then add the whipping cream and 15 drops green food coloring.
3
Gather your straws (don’t forget to flex them out) and put them in the container. It’s important that the straws have a tight fit so the jello stays in the straws. For this reason, a 1 liter carton may be better; you will probably get longer worms since there is a tighter fit. If you have a bigger container, a rubber band around the straws is helpful. Or you could just add more straws to fill the container.
4
Add the gelatin mixture to the straw-filled container and let it set until firm.
5
There are multiple ways you can remove the worms from the straws. You can roll a rolling pin over the straws and squeeze them out or you can hold the straws over warm water. The worms will slip right out.
